Midcurrent Midweek – 10.14.21

Hey Midcurrent! As I sit down to write today, we are less than 24 hours away from the calendar flipping to October 15. What is so special about that date you may wonder? Let me tell you. Four years ago, on October 15, 2017, we opened the doors of Midcurrent...

Midcurrent Midweek – 9.1.21

On more than one occasion over the past year, I’ve pointed out the fact that Midcurrent continues to grow. But it has dawned on me that I haven’t taken as much time to point out the fact that our staff continues to grow as well!  Some have been hired-part time. And...

No Filter

My littlest human turns 5 tomorrow.  Baby & toddlerhood have walked through my house & shown themselves out.  I am not honest if I tell you this doesn’t hit, though it’s a smaller Mack truck than I’d planned.  So that’s nice. One thing I will miss, besides chubby feet &...

Midcurrent Midweek – 8.25.21

A few weeks back, I mentioned the possibility that Camp St. Croix might no longer be available to us beginning this September. A number of you have since asked, “Sten, what’s the deal with Camp St. Croix?” It’s a great question. You deserve an update. And I can finally provide...

Midcurrent Midweek – 8.11.21

Hey Midcurrent! Not even six months ago, we stepped up to the plate, took a swing, and (honestly, much to our surprise) knocked one out of the park! What exactly am I referring to?? I’m talking about MC YOUTH!! Truthfully, COVID halted any bit of momentum from the smallest beginnings...

Midcurrent Midweek – 7.21.21

Hey Midcurrent! I truly hope you are enjoying these summer months. I, for one, have had a whirlwind month of July. I’ve spent the month doing three things primarily: speaking, vacationing, and praying.  The month began with me speaking for a week (twice a day!!!) for a couple hundred people at a...

The Other Side of the Dark

We just wrapped up a message series called Dangerous Prayers: 1. Search Me 2. Break Me and 3. Send Me. The second one got to me – here are my thoughts. “God purifies hearts.”  ~Proverbs 17:3. I would rather He not;  let’s be honest.  I am comfortable where I am. ...

Tappity, Tap, Tap

Last week in church, we talked about the fruit of the spirit and Jill shared her thoughts: I don’t have a good relationship with the Fruits of the Spirit.  Or, I should say, I grew up with them, went to college for them, & choke on them now & again. ...
